Is Jesus saying that people are literally sheep here, wool and all, or is he using a metaphor to get his point across? If you believe it is a metaphor then why would you think everlasting fire is not? Such a place literally is ridiculous, so you have to start thinking of alternative meanings that it could have.

So if we use logic and say none of the supernatural stuff occurred what exactly are you left with? Using logic that would be what you would do correct? So do we just have a story about a guy who had a bit of a god complex?
Or could it be that instead of erasing his story from history, they turned around and stole and manipulated it for their own agendas? Funny how the ones in power have let the "truth" perpetuate for the past 2,500 years yet they can't seem to tell the truth about anything else. Why would they truly let us have the real "truth" for so long?
Probably because the whole faith-based thing and the miracles and resurrection are not truth at all, but myths spun by those in power in order to make Jesus look more than just a normal human so that people would worship him as a god.
Why would you extensively study something you believe is completely false?
14 God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: I AM has sent me to you."
58 "I tell you the truth", Jesus answered, "Before Abraham was born, I am!"
20 For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature-- have been clearly seen, being understood by what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
